"Your hair's looking a bit thin at the front," she says. She turns to the boy. "Your father is losing his hair, I'm afraid."

"I'm married," I say. "I no longer need hair."

"He has to say that because he's going bald."

"She's just trying to flatten my self-esteem," I tell the boy. "She can't help it. It's her life's purpose."

"She's like a self-esteem roller," he says.

"That's very good," I say. "I can use that."

My wife glares at both of us.

"No, you cannot use it," she says. "I'm not allowing it. You cannot write that I am like a self-esteem roller."

"Yes I can," I say. "I can use it if I want." I look at the boy. "Can't I?" He thinks for a minute.

"Five pounds," he says finally.

"Done," I say.
